About this specialty coffee:
This Yellow Bourbon from Brazil is something very special: The ripe coffee cherries are not red but yellow, similar to ripe yellow or green tomatoes. Yellow Bourbon coffee originated from an island in the Indian Ocean (previous name: Île Bourbon; today: Reunion; between Madagascar and Mauritius).
This coffee is genetically a different plant: Its taste is neither Arabica nor Robusta, but comparable with a very fine Arabica with an unusual additional sensation. Bourbon coffee trees carry 25% fewer coffee berries than Arabica varieties. Coffee connoisseurs believe that this lower density berry crop leads to a more concentrated taste in the coffee bean.
The coffee beans are lovely in color, the blend smooth in taste and aroma.
This coffee’s taste is considered unique: It is often compared to a fine liqueur, with an added splash of energizing acidity
